it's going to be hard to wait a month for this to be done. it bubbling away very happy right now.

i used 2 can's of plain lemonaide and 1 can of raspberry lemonaide. i plan on racking it with a few pounds of real raspberries and back sweeten with another can of raspberry lemonaide.

my question is where would one find corn sugar? i've checked all the stores in the area and even went to the healthly/organic stores and couldn't find it. so i just used cane sugar. hope it turns out.

Nearly every homebrew shop carries corn sugar. I frequent Midwest Supplies given that I'm in Minneapolis. Otherwise, I think other people on the message board have said table sugar can be substituted for corn sugar. You'd have to do more research on whether its a 1 for 1 ratio or something else. I'm already on to my second batch of this stuff. I'm going to up this to a 5 gallon batch with a higher OG by adding more honey.

Well the one of the batches went south . Got a infection. Had to dump it. The other one came out good . But I should have put more dextrose in it or back sweeten it . Its ok . But can be better . I will make more to to nail this down

Default Need Help!


I recently made a Orange, Passion Fruit, Tea Mead ( or attempted to ) and i wound up with an extremely strong tea flavor. Harsh enough that it makes it hard to drink. Any suggestions on how I can save this mead without having to toss it? Thanks in advance for any help

Sincerely
Zinaku

yes yes yes. Drinking a kill the golfers now. How long to you find the aging process to be. I'm a primary only kind of guy myself, so I'm good with that method. just curious how long it takes to be ready or "hitting" as I call it.

Anyone actually have tasting notes on this?? Save me now if it sucks. I think it looks worth a shot. Those who have brewed, please let me know what you think. What would you do differently next time etc...

How could I keg this without carbonating it? You need psi to push it out the line and soon as you connect it it'd going to start carbing. I suppose to could attach the air everytime I'm ready to drink but

Haven't made Mead yet. Gonna think about this one. How strong is the tea flavor, cause I'm not real fond of tea. Pretty close to a real Arnold Palmer? What if I backed the tea down to just one gallon?

Just mixed up a batch of this with 1 gallon sweet tea, 1 gallon Simply Lemonade, 4lbs of Honey and some top up water. ended up with just over 3 gallons of 1.055 must and pitched some wine yeast. Sample tastes great, can't wait to try it once it's done fermenting.
